Question How to cover up scars? - May 17th 2015, 06:01 AM

Ok how do you cover up scars on your arm at school? I'm not allowed to wear a jumper cause I will get in trouble for it as it is not school uniform and I cant wear long sleeve shirts under my school shirt cause that is also not school uniform. So how do I cover it up? Like no one knows about it at school and cause they're new looking ones people will ask questions which I am not too keen on happening. Make up doesn't work on my skin to cover it so that won't help either. I need advice?

Are you allowed to wear any sort of accessories, or is that also against uniform? If it's not, accessories may help.

Are you not allowed to wear ANY sort of jumper, or do they have to be in school colors or have a logo? Maybe it's worth asking if you can get something that matches the school colors?

If they're healed, scar reducing creams and lotions such as cocoa butter may help, but that isn't an overnight process.

I know you may not want to hear this but I urge you to seek help. You don't deserve to live in fear of people finding out, but there are people who care and would love to help.

Accessories are against uniform although I wear them anyway but not enough to cover it up, plus they are starting to enforce the school uniform a bit more so accessories are a no go. Jumpers have to have the school logo and be the school colour and everything so jumper is also a no go. I have a jumper that matches the school colours so I wore it on Friday but I got in trouble for it. I didn't have to take it off though but I got told never to wear it again or it will be taken off me. Our school is really strict on uniform, and I can't let the scars show as you get sent home to cover it up if they're visible. I know everyone will be like, no that's not true, they can't do that, but trust me, they can, and they will. I saw them do it to 2 girls with scars on them. They can only be visible if you can only see them faintly, or you have to look hard to see them to know they're there. So basically I am doomed cause our school sucks.

I used a small bandage, and just said it was something else .. You could say you burned yourself, or accidentally fell on glass or something.

It may raise questions, or it may not.
Hope you're okay..

Yea I might use a band aid or something to just cover up the big ones so its not so noticeable or not as big a deal. Thanks for the help
